X11 has stopped working on fedora 35

It seems that the x11 drivers are not working with fedora 35 any more. Last working version was with kernel 5.15.10-200. Versions that have not worked so far:

  • 5.15.11-200
  • 5.15.12-200
  • 5.15.13-200
  • 5.15.14-200

Currently, I’m using xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-495.46-1.fc35 from rpmfusion (and reported the problem there at 6193 – plasma/kde/x11 has stopped working )

Any suggestions?

Kind regards,


You may need to contact RPMFusion, the packager of what you use. I’m on Fedora 35 using X11 and things are working just fine with 495.44+ and 510.39.01 on kernels > 5.15.10 (I’m on 5.15.14 ATM). I stopped using packaged drivers long ago, for reasons such as you are having. I install directly via the Nvidia installer using DKMS and things generally work well, even after kernel updates.

When I package the rpmfusion driver I test it with ‘X11 Cinnamon’ and ‘Wayland Gnome’.

  Host: fedora Kernel: 5.15.13-200.fc35.x86_64 x86_64 bits: 64
  Desktop: Cinnamon 5.2.7 Distro: Fedora release 35 (Thirty Five)
  Device-1: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti] driver: nvidia v: 495.46
  Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.14 driver: loaded: nvidia

You need to provide the required info.

Button line:

  • On 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU106 [GeForce RTX 2060 Rev. A] (rev a1) the rpmfusion package xorg-x11-drv-nvidia version 3:495.46-1.fc35 does not work any more
  • On this card you need NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-470.94.run nowerdays ( NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-495.46.run does not work).

With the wrong driver, you will find the following at /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

I’ve seen a similar issue with Mate.

You could use the 470xx driver till the issue is resolved.
